Our Practice Areas


If you’ve been pulled over and charged with a DWI or DUI – call us. Charges for Driving While Intoxicated and Driving Under the Influence are stressful and difficult to navigate. Knowing your rights and working with an attorney that understands the specifics of your situation are the quickest ways to be released from jail and expunge the charges from your record.



Violence within your family, or any type of assault, is personal and painful. The confusion, stress and burden of terrifying accusations can prove to be very difficult to untangle and approach from an unbiased, legal perspective. Ben Gergen will provide legal counsel on how to best handle a personal assault charge and how to ensure your safety throughout this process.



It’s never an easy to face allegations for drug possession, and each Texas County has its own set of laws around possession cases. The right lawyer will be able to review your case and identify the right way to act on your behalf in court. Consult with us today so that we can protect your rights and restore your record.



Affirmative defense, or proving your innocence in case of robbery, is one of the most complex processes in criminal defense. It is crucial that defining the circumstances, the question of intent, and examining evidence is all done by an experienced criminal defense lawyer.



Criminal homicide, or being charged for murder, is an extreme legal situation that comes with diverse complications. Knowing your rights, and relying on an experienced, unbiased lawyer to defend them is imperative. Immediate action and representation could make all the difference in your case.

What Our Clients Have To Say

Saved me!!

I hired Mr Gergen to handle 2 felony cases for me. Not only did he get me out of jail but he also got me into treatment as an option and I am now in recovery. Thank you! If you are willing to work for it, this is your guy!!


Best lawyer in Austin

I had a issue on where I had hired a lawyer prior to Benjamin, I had set bail with another lawyer who was too lazy to go to another municipal judge to sign off on it I was on a monitor, I then fired him and Benjamin came in. I am back with my family from the ankle monitor. Still fighting this case but hiring Benjamin is worth it, he’s straight up and forward. You don’t expect that from many lawyers. He’s great if your in Austin and get caught up on some bogus charges! Thanks Benjamin I will forever use you if I get into any other problems in life!

Joshua Pantoja

Great lawyer

Ben has done a great job on my case so far and I highly recommended him to any body that has a drug case in Travis county. His rates arecently more reasonable than anyone else I talked to and is getting better results than any other lawyer told me they could do for me. I hold him up very high and have given his cards to a bunch of my friends.

Super great job Benjamin is

Benjamin is a Angel and an great attorney I hired him not one but twice and both times he fought a good one for me me already being down to prison 3× and an ugly Criminal record he kept me free on grounds I will always hire and refer everyone one to him and he is very honest he will tell you straight up what to expect and what not to expect I built family with Ben I respect this man to the max.


Best Attorney hands down

Benjamin is an awesome Attorney and I am very satisfied with the hard work he is putting in towards my case and makes me feel very confident when I walk in the court room with him representing me. He is very straight forward and treats me like family and because I was on time with all payments he even went out of his way to bond me out when I couldn't pay bond up front and I will never forget that. No Lawyer would ever do that for their client. Thanks Ben your the best!

So, I had a tough case and I expected a 5 to 10 year outcome...
Mr. Gergen got me 2. He's a genius and I would use him again in a heartbeat!

Erica Alvarez

Outstanding Criminal Defense Attorney

This lawyer assisted me in my Travis county criminal case. He carries himself in a very professional manner, and is very personable when you speak with him. He explained my legal issue in a manner that I was able to clearly understand. In addition, he planned an excellent strategy for my defense at court before he met me for the first time. He has gone above and beyond what other lawyers typically do for a client with my history in the criminal court. He treated me with respect and spoke to me "man to man". To him, I am not just another cause number or paycheck down at the court house. It is my opinion that he also observed the highest level of legal ethics as my counsel, and is not an attorney who simply agrees with the quick decisions of prosecutors who carry large caseloads and don't take time to fully examine the facts of each individual case. I recommend this attorney to my loved ones, and would use his services again if I need to. He will go the extra mile for his clients.
